I love Owls
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:19:58 AM »


I don't believe it! >:( Amazon.com have delivered this almost a week earlier than expected, but they've completely mucked up the delivery address! As is obvious from the picture above, they've clearly delivered it to quevy by mistake! ::)

If it really had gone to quevy then it would have made more sense. After all, it's the Wheel of (mis-)fortune.  ;)

Quevy's not the only one who likes owls. Here is a candle of mine and my salt and pepper holders.

Maybe someone is making fun of me?

I do not particularly like the owls, they like my wife ....
A knight is sworn to valour.
His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

No, it's just that you often post pictures of tiles on top of a tablecloth with owls on it so we thought you liked owls. Sorry to hear you don't like them after all  :'(

I have to put up with them and my wife has to put up with my things, even though we share many passions.

I'm envy. Not because of the collection, but to actually have a display for it and not getting remarks from friends and family for it! I'm not allowed to have anything non-"grown up" stuff for display anywhere in the house.
  Except for in my office which is a non-entering for anyone else but me. :)

Certainly not making fun of you. I did think it might make you laugh though, sorry if you didn't like it...

I'm not much of am owl collector either, but the owl on the right (in my picture) is something that I've owned for most of my life. It's a Beatrix Potter figure that was one of the first pieces in a collection that was started for me when I was just 3 or 4 years old.

Now though, what's left of the collection (not very much as they're made from china and I was a young child - what could go wrong? ::)) belongs to my son and sits on a high shelf in his bedroom.

This is one of the saddest posts I've ever seen on Carcassonne Central. I miss those owls already.  :'(
